Features

1) Space-Saving Design 2) Structure Prevents Damage During Mating 3) Independent Power Supply Contacts

The accelerating trend towards miniaturization and higher functionality in communication terminals such as smartphones and tablet PCs, as well as wearable devices such as smartwatches and AR/VR glasses, requires a further reduction in the height and area of electronic components mounted on internal boards. This adds mounting complexity, especially in connectors that make board-to-board or board-to-FPC connections, which makes guiding structures increasingly necessary for damage prevention in the mating process.

Kyocera has commercialized the “5814 Series” Board to Board connectors to meet these market needs with a space-saving design and a unique damage-prevention structure. 

This product can be used not only for board-to-board connection but also for board-to-FPC.

"5814 Series" Features

1) Space-Saving Design

Compared to our conventional product (0.35 mm pitch), it requires 32% less surface area.

  • New Product: 0.30mm Pitch, Width 1.50mm
  • Conventional product 0.35mm Pitch, Width 1.95mm

2) Structure Prevents Damage During Mating

The unique structure of two metal fitting parts, one on the outside and one on the inside of both ends, each suitable for a different function, improves guiding function during mating operations and reduces working time. Each fitting is soldered to the board to enhance strength against deformation and breakage.

3) Independent Power Supply Contacts

Apart from signal pins, two power supply pins at both ends can be energized to a DC 5A contact. Consequently, this feature enables compatibility with the increasing demand for rapid charging in smartphones and wearable devices.
